Lumière was a restaurant on West Broadway in the Kitsilano neighbourhood of Vancouver, Canada. It was founded by Rob Feenie, who up until 2007 was the executive chef. Feenie, who was a minority owner, left the restaurant after a falling-out with his business partners. After Feenie's departure, Daniel Boulud was brought in as a new co-owner. Wendy Boys has been with the restaurant since 2003 as the head pastry chef. As of February 2011, the executive chef was Dale MacKay, a former protégé of chef Gordon Ramsay and the winner of Top Chef Canada. On February 28, 2011, the ownership announced that Lumiere, along with sister-restaurant db Bistro Moderne, would be closing on March 13, 2011.

"The kitchen is unassailable on any level and Feenie is a serious chef whose passion for cooking comes through in every dish."
"Rare is the chef who combines raw talent, commitment to excellence, and heartfelt generosity - the requisites for operating a world class restaurant. Rob Feenie epitomizes that rarity and Vancouver is the richer for it."
"Lumiere is quite possibly the finest restaurant in all of Canada."
